    • SIT Bus Shuttle

      by dpharr Online Now 5 hours ago

      Hello,

      My wife and I are scheduled to arrive at FCO 7:35 am.  2 questions related to scheduling the SIT Bus Shuttle:

      • Is it necessary to pre-book seats on-line or can tickets be purchased on arrival?
      • The booking options on-line are for select times (every 45min).  Are the pre-booked ticket times firm?  For instance, if our flight is delayed, etc, will our ticket apply for another departure time?

      Thanks for any help.

    • Rome to Cortona by train

      by cheltx Online Now Jul 3, 2014 at 4:52 PM

      Understand there are two stops near Cortona - Terontola or Camucia. Is one a better choice than the other? Are there buses/taxis from either to Cortona? Should we book the train in advance or just go from the airport in Rome to Termini Station and buy a ticket there? On the return trip, we have a morning flight back to the US and so will go back to Rome the day before. Can you recommend a hotel close to the Termini Station or are there actually airport hotels that would be a better choice? Thanks

      5 days in Rome

      by danes0602 Online Now 17 hours ago

      Hello fellow travelers! My friends and I will be in Rome for 5 days (Sept 26 - 30, 2014). What's your advice on purchasing the Roma Pass? Is it better than booking directly online (for the Colosseum, museums, etc.)?
      Any off the beaten path spots to see in Rome?

      Also, we found an affordable apartment. We'll be staying at Holiday And Rome (in Piazza Tommaso De Cristoforis). Any feedback on this (location-wise, review, etc.)?

      I would appreciate your feedback and suggestions. Thank you!

      3 days in Rome

      by tracyskf Online Now Jul 3, 2014 at 7:01 AM

      I am visiting in mid October and have 3 full days for Rome (and 1 day for Pompeii as day trip from Rome).

      Should I see Rome first for 3 days then head to Pompeii / the other way round or any views if this does not make a difference?

      For 3 full days in Rome, how best can I maximise? I am planning to visit Vatican City, Collosseum, Pantheon amongst others - can someone give me some pointers?

      I will be staying near Roma Termini - is everything walkable and any good recommendation for food?

      Thanks :)
